The United States Volunteers, Inc. (USV) provides an association of living history organizations that portray military units and civilian personnel from the period of the American Civil War, in order to perpetuate and extend the knowledge of that period through the medium of living history and reenactments of military battles.
The member units of the USV are themselves individual living history groups, thus making the USV a national umbrella organization for the command structure, coordination, and collaboration of like minded historians.
The USV is a Not For Profit organization.
The USV is structured as a combined forces military command with three infantry regiments, a cavalry troop, an artillery battery, a sharpshooter battalion, and a civilian organization. Each of those various contingents is further comprised of individual member units.
